Boomkat Product Review:
Drag City uncover another great bit of Manchester post punk experimentalism few knew existed. Originally released on the short-lived Groovy Records, Sally Smmit's 'Hangahar' is a soundtrack to the eponymous film and was recorded in 1979 at Whalley Range's Smile Studios with a cast including former Buzzcock Pete Shelley, Lindsey Lee, Francis Cookson and Gerard Cookson aka The Tiller Boys. Beguiling and esoteric, 'Hangahar' is defined by sparse, minimal percussion rituals and skewed, scrawled synth patterns with Sally and Lindsey's angelic vocals spiralling across the first half, while the second is stranger still; the drums even more splayed and freeform and the vocals possessed in some kinda theatrical avant-garde display. It sounds f**k-all like anything associated with Manchester's post punk types that we could recall from this era, serving as an outlet for the improvised inclinations of the city's experimentally minded cognoscenti. Excellent stuff.
